A fine Art session usually takes about 1-2hrs.
I will be taking a selection of emotive images of your child that brings out the best in them.
Clothing and styling is very important in these sessions to give the right feel to your images.
Please look through the galleries of inspiration and contact me for advice on what works well.
I have a selection of dresses to choose from, however if you have a dress in mind please bring this along too. (please message me beforehand to check it would suit this style of photography)
These sessions are for those wanting something very special to hang on the wall.
What your Fine Art session includes:
* My time and expertise as your photographer.
* A selection of digitals and prints - depending on what package you go for (there are three to choose from please message me for full details)
* Professional editing of the best images from your session.
* Viewing via an online password protected gallery.
Your Fine Art Experience - the process from start to finish:
To book a session all you need to do is contact me via Facebook: www.facebook.com/mlbphotographic or my website www.mlbphotographic.co.uk
Once a suitable date has been arranged a desposit of £75 is required to secure your appointment time. This deposit is non-refundable but fully transferable if you need to change your appointment date/time, this fee is also deducted from you chosen package price.
The balance of your session fee is due on the day of your appointment. (payment plans are available, please ask me about this if you require) When booking a photography sessions you agree to abide by the terms & conditions stated on my website.
Please read through these before coming to the studio, as they contain important information.
When you arrive for your session I will go through the outfits available and we can choose the ones that work best. From here you can sit back and enjoy seeing your child being photographed. I will quietly direct and encourage your child all the way through the session to get the very best from them. I will be guided by their capabilities so that they feel comfortable and at ease. I will take as many photographs as I feel I need to get some truly special images for you. Photographic times vary depending on the child - they can last 1 - 3hrs.
Your images will be ready to view 2-3 weeks after your session date (sometimes 4 weeks at peak periods) Before you see your images
I will carefully go through all the photographs taken in your session and select the very best ones for you to view. I will then spend several hours working on them to ensure you see them at their finest.
They will be cleaned up, colour balanced and edited to remove any blemishes in order to make sure your child looks their best. They will also be adjusted to give a beautiful 'Fine Art' feel to them.
Due to the bespoke nature of every order, payment is required upon ordering any extra digitals, prints or other bespoke wall art. From here your selected images will be checked over very carefully and prepared
for printing onto your chosen product/s. As all frames, canvases and acrylics are handmade, orders genereally take between 3-6 weeks before they are ready for collection.

COVID19 STUDIO GUIDELINES
With the current Covid situation in High Peak, I feel it is not the right time to ease any safety protocols on 19th July.
At present High Peak is seeing some of the highest levels of COVID – the largest number of cases in the last week through all three waves of the pandemic.
On Monday I will continue to follow my current model of service and operation, I will still be wearing a face mask and even though it will not be legal I would appreciate you wearing one too please, due to my studio being in my home. I will still be cleaning down all my surfaces and props etc... I'm doing my best to protect you, myself & my family as much as possible, I have had both vaccines myself.
I feel this is the responsible thing to do for our community and will continue to monitor the situation.
Thank you for your understanding
I appreciate this is a very unusual time for us all, and not being able to work in the same way as before will be very hard, as the type
of photography session will also be very limited, as will the number of people I can have in my studio at any one time, due to my studio
being in my home. Availability will also be a lot less so I would like to thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
